Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

DGT 3-3

He is moving a bit better, has to improve his court positioning.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

40-0 up and now DGT has to face a bp.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Olaso just won four points in a row from pure fight. Three straight passing shot winners. Not great net play from Daniel, though.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Big game for Daniel to hold, Olaso really dug in there. Now DGT has an opportunity to break here.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Olaso is closing his eyes and swinging.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Olaso getting dead netcords, and DGT with clownish approaches to the net.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

DGT what to say served for the match at *5-3 in the 2nd set. Then got broken from 40-0 in the last game.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

I knew it was over when Olaso got the letcord. I knew it just wasn't DGT's day. Things like that really are a sign that circumstances are simply against you.

Really, given the fact he was dominating the match and probably should have won 6-4 6-2, this result hopefully will be the punch in the gut needed to wake him up. Olaso was the better player in the end.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Daniel looked pretty bewildered/heartbroken after losing. I think he felt he truly was going to win after fighting back in the third. He put his heart into the match, but it wasn't enough. It's too bad. He's just gotta keep at it and keep fighting.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Ouahab 6-1 over Ungur

Not surprised he's leading but the score is very lopsided.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Riba 6-4 first set over Bedene

Good serve numbers and dominated points on Bedene's second serve. That's the key to success. Hope he keeps it up.
